South Korea To Reinstate Military Intelligence With Japan

South Korea on Tuesday said it is planning to reinstate a military intelligence-sharing pact with Japan.

The decision by Seoul's Foreign Ministry follows a summit between South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol and his Japanese counterpart Fumio Kishida in Tokyo last week.

During the meeting, the two sides agreed to mend ties over historical disputes.

Yoon also reportedly told Kishida he wanted a normalization of a 2016 military agreement called the General Security of Military Information Agreement (GSOMIA).

The agreement aims to allow the two countries to share military secrets, particularly over North Korea's nuclear and missile capacity.

South Korea's 2019 threat to scrap the GSOMIA came as relations with Japan hit a new low over trade disputes and the row over forced labour.
